YouTube Video SEO 2019

Here I am explaining YouTube Video SEO with some data.

Those days are gone when People were totally dependent on Google Search Box.

Now People are smarter. They want their answer in visual mode.

People love Video-Audio format because our brains are programmed in such a way that it retains visual content better than a text.

Scientists say

  1. 65 % percent of people are visual learners.
  2. People keep 80% percent in mind what they see or watch.
  3. People only keep 20 % of what they read.
  4. Pictures were the first language in the world.

Statistics Data shows

  1. Visual Content brings 67 % percent more traffics.
  2. 80% percent are video traffics on the internet.



The video is a most easier way to convey your message to the audience.

I prefer to go on YouTube to find the answer to my questions and if I do not find my answer then I would go on google.

Wait…… Here I get an opportunity.

Maybe… Some other person is also searching the same thing.

It is a good time to make a video on that topic because demand is more and supply is less. Think…?

YouTube is the second most biggest search Engine in the World. You can second search engine giant in the World.

Data reveals ” Users are moving to YouTube from Google”.

Why are Company or brands moving to YouTube?

Companies are focusing more on YouTube than TV or Newspapers.  Have you noticed?

Answer is –

  1. Visual aids are most effective when they are displayed.
  2. 85 % percent more chance to buy products if customers watch a Video ad
  3. The video is more engaging and more memorable.

Neil Patel and Brian Dean ( Backlinko) are the best examples for it.

They do not to the third party to advertise their products. They do their advertisement themselves.

Neil Patel advertises his product (Ubersuggest) on YouTube and brings huge traffic from YouTube to his website and the same Brian Dean does. I am one of his audience.

What is YouTube Video SEO?

I would like to say in one sentence “boosting traffic to your YouTube Video“.

In my personal opinion, I would also like to say ” YouTube Traffic is equal to the sum of Quality Content Plus Video SEO strategy.

YouTube Traffic= Quality Content + Video SEO Strategy



If you have good quality content and good Video SEO strategy, Your video will be boosted.

It will be reached to your defined audience.

YouTube bot will take the responsibility to push your video to the destination at the right time.

Why we need YouTube Video SEO?

Yes…… We can upload videos on YouTube without doing Video SEO.

Nobody is going to stop you but here I have a question for you.

  1. How will YouTube Bot understand your Video content (Is it a song or Is it news or Is it tutorial)?
  2. Where will YouTube suggest your video?

If you do not do Video SEO strategy, Do not expect for Views because YouTube Bot will not able to define your video. It is just blank for YouTube bot.



Let say you are an employee of XYZ company.

You are an extraordinary employee and you give more value to xyz company.

You are doing well but you are not alone in the queue. There are also some employees who are doing good so my question is

  1. How will you reach your next destination?
  2. How will xyz company give you next opportunity?

The answer is Visibility. You have to show your visibility to your organization.

And the same goes for YouTube Video. There are n numbers of YouTubers.

They give good quality content like you but here you need Video SEO to show visibility of Video to YOuTube Bot. Video SEO helps to improve your rank and boost traffic to your video.

I have already consumed your time but I want to share it with scientific data, static data and with correct explanation.
Without wasting further time, let start………

1. Embed
2. Advance Comment

Embed Video

For analysis purpose, I click on the video ” Eminem- Love The way You Lie ft. Rihanna

It is also one of the best function by VidIq. YouTube provides simple embed option but here VidIq provides advance Embed.


  1. VidIq-Vision-for-YouTube


YouTube used to allow us to untick ” Show related video” and “Hide YouTube Logo”, ” Autoplay” etc. With the help of VidIq, we still tick or untick while embedding the video.




Let say you want to embed your video or someone video on your website.

If you do not untick the ” Show related video”, it will show more videos at the end of the video and most probably, the audience would go from your Platform (website) to YouTube.

In simple words, you are losing your audience.

Advance Comment

You get the advance comment option just below the video. Here you can filter the comment accordingly.
